September 21st Harvest Festival: Thank you everyone for getting back to Peg Lehr; even with all my mistakes! We cannot run this festival without your help! We still need manpower at these shifts/stations: Master Grillers for all shifts except the 10:30 to 11:30. It won’t be much of a picnic without hamburgers and hotdogs! There are shifts open in the afternoon for clearing tables, emptying the trash and the hat/cookbook table. Anyone want to be a taste tester? We need judges for the canning contest. Categories are: Pickles – sweet and dill, Jam/Jelly, Relish – fruit and veggie, Other – chutney, marmalades, etc. Please have your entries at the table by 12:45, judging will begin at 1 pm. Get your RSVP registered at 303-320-5706 or firstname.lastname@example.org this week! The deadline is the 13th!
Winter Shares: I have been recently contacted by last year’s Louisville Distribution Center and she will not be in town enough to be a DC this winter. We need someone to step up and be the DC for Louisville/Broomfield. So far, no one has offered to be a DC in the Wash Park area either. If we cannot find a new DC, we will be limited and how many members will be able to join in the center of Denver. (We can use anyone near 6th & Downing; you don’t necessarily need to be in Wash Park!) The 6th & Downing location only has 4 spaces left! Dates of Distribution: Nov. 5 & 19, Dec. 3 & 17, Jan. 14 & 28, and Feb. 11 & 25. You will get double on the 17th of December for the missed week on the 31st! Don’t forget the September 30 deadline!
2015: We will be asking members to commit verbally over the next two months whether or not you intend to be members in 2015. If you do not commit verbally, your space is up for grabs! A Statement listing the same items ordered in 2014 will be mailed to committed members in January and your space will be reserved for you. If you do not want an item previously ordered, let us know and it will be cancelled. We will be sending out hard copy forms in January to everyone on our Wait List as well as previous members. Any unreserved spaces in the CSA will be first come, first served! Reserve your space now by phone or email!
Tomato Picking: Call now to be placed on a Wait List to pick tomatoes…not sure when it will happen though! Will give more details next week.
Two more weeks before it is officially fall!
